datafile is a file from which data is inputed. Its a text file that contains information user would have to type in otherwise.

Dan has a great tutorial on using it here ->

Menues, ya, its easy to make. Its just a simple if-elsif-else statment.

put "1 - Tony"
put "2 - Dan"
get ans
if ans = 1 then
put "You picked tony"
elsif ans = 2 then
put "You didn't pick Tony... he's upset now"
put "invalid choice"
end if

you can add more options to it by adding additional elsif

If the assigment is due soon, you better add tony to your MSN list and hope that he's not busy and in a good mood Wink

If you copy an assigment, you're taking a chance of getting caught. Some schools are VERY strict about plagerism and you might get detention/suspension/ or get expeled.

Here's an idea. Make a very simple game, but use some really cool features. Go to tutorial section for turing and take a look at:

Using mouse
Using sound/music
Using pictures/images
Character control
Collision detection

and to make your game look REALLY cool - text effects.

Here's the simpliest game with the coolest features:

have a ball follow your mouse and bump when it hits obsticles on screen. To actually make it look cool, use .jpg images for graphics, play sounds when ball hits objects, and display intro screen using some text effects

Very Happy

Don't worry, you gonna do great.
